Good Friends!

CHA has always been a place for me to see my good friends in the craft industry. Of all the people in my life, these people get me. They understand what drives me and my crafting passion. One of my very best friend's is Linda Wyszynski. Her needlework can be found in magazines such as "Create and Decorate" and "Craft N Things." Her needlework talent blows me away. She is also great for giving me sound advice and I always listen to what she has to say. Note to self: I need to do this more with Rocketman. While we were in South Korea, she moved out of state so we don't have our Chili's get togethers quite as often although we did manage to do it during CHA.

I had breakfast with "The Queen of Crafts" Carol Duvall, Kelly Ehrlich the executive producer of "The Carol Duvall Show" and Mary O'Neill. Carol is back and it's going to be with a presence on the web. Finally you will be able to see old episodes of "The Carol Duvall Show." There are also plans for new ones too! It will be the place to go for everything crafts.

If you want to be kept in the loop, email to keep up with the latest news.

Of course, I had to get a picture with Carol. She looks fantastic and we caught up on so much.

I wanted a picture of Kelly so she took my camera and snapped this herself. I think she may have a future in photography. I don't know how she did it so quickly.

I got to walk the show with Holly who was my first producer on "The Carol Duvall Show." She is making a career as a fabulous beadmaker. She even teaches classes. We walked the CHA show and Rocketman was only too happy to take a break. We topped the night off with dinner at The Cheesecake Factory.

Due to Rocketman's flying, we were upgraded to First Class on the return trip. I was surprised to see how little leg room there was. But Rocketman reminded me that this was not an international flight like I was used to. Unfortunately, we didn't sit together and Rocketman was sitting directly behind me also in a window seat. The gentleman who was to sit next to me came on board and saw that we were together and gave up his aisle seat so we could sit together. Chivalry is not dead I'm happy to report.

We came back to negative temperatures and sore legs. I still need to organize all the stuff I came home with. Right now it's all over my craft table.


  1. I'm loving all these posts! I only wish I could have seen you more!

  2. Oh, I love Carol Duvall! I am very excited to see the old shows again and also am tickled to hear of new shows coming!
